Moss has played at Australia’s most famous racetrack with Cold Chisel in the past, and has even done several hot laps with professional drivers around the circuit. 

‘I have fond memories of the early days with Cold Chisel, including playing on a stage set up inside the Mount Panorama racetrack. I have done the hot lap a few times at Mount Panorama,’ the rock icon told the Western Advocate in 2018.

‘I have also played, with Cold Chisel, at Bathurst jail.’

On Sunday he received the honour of opening the biggest race on the V8 Supercars calendar, playing in front of the first full-house in Bathurst since the start of the pandemic. 

Fans quickly noticed Moss was looking down throughout the song, with different camera angles then revealing a piece of paper perched on a speaker in front of the singer.

Social media was abuzz with criticism of the 66-year-old as motorsport fans realised he was singing the anthem off a ‘cheat sheet’. 

‘Ian Moss reading the words off a cheat sheet to sing the Australian National Anthem is a disgrace and embarrassing,’ a man wrote on Twitter. 

‘F**k Mossy, that was painful to watch. I hope none of the drivers crash as badly as Ian Moss just did at Bathurst,’ another joked. 

‘Not sure which was worst – Ian Moss singing of our anthem or having the words in front of him,’ a person tweeted.
